Dear Colleagues and Friends,

it is my great pleasure to invite you to the WorldLab Euromedlab Rome 2023 – 25th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF CLINICAL CHEMISTRY AND LABORATORY MEDICINE and 25th EUROPEAN CONGRESS OF CLINICAL CHEMISTRY AND LABORATORY MEDICINE that will be held in Rome from May 21st to 25th, 2023.

Rome, a city well-known for its Art and Culture, is happy to be the host of the event and will be honored to welcome you at the new Convention Center “The Cloud” placed in the heart of the city. This spectacular location promises to offer you an excellent conference venue with latest technology and functionality combined with the extraordinary history of Rome.

The Covid Pandemic forced us to change our life for years, to get in touch mainly by distance and to limit meetings with colleagues and friends.

During this challenging time we fought together against the spread of the virus and against Covid19 disease contributing to the screening, diagnosis, follow up and prognosis with a decisive impact in the outcome of Covid19 for millions of people all over the world.

From this tragedy we learnt that nobody can be leave behind and that this is the main mission of IFCC that always has been the leader in developing evidence on the Value and impact of Laboratory Medicine in patient care and enhancing quality of clinical laboratory testing globally.

The Rome Conference Organizing Committee planned an exciting scientific programme to showcase the future of laboratory diagnostics. The event will be covering cutting edge science and disrupting technologies in laboratory medicine together with IVD Companies that will attend the great LabMed Exhibition in “The Cloud”. We are certain that the IFCC WorldLab  EuroMedLab Rome 2023 will be a rewarding and unforgettable experience for all our participants attending from around the world.

Looking forward to meeting you all in Rome at IFCC WorldLab-Euromedlab 2023.

Yours truly,

Sergio Bernardini

Congress President

Scientific programme committee Chair Message

On behalf of The European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine and on behalf of the Scientific Programme Committee of the Congress, I warmly invite you to join us at the joint 25th International Congress of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (WorldLab) and 25th European Congress of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EuroMedLab) which will be hosted by the Italian Society of Clinical Biochemistry and Clinical Molecular Biology, on the occasion of their 55th Annual congress.

The COVID-19 pandemic was and still is a very difficult time for most of us, but it was also the opportunity to demonstrate the extraordinary value and significant contribution of our profession in the global joint battle against Sars-CoV-2 virus. Laboratory medicine was at the core of the defence strategy, providing tools for effective detection of COVID-19 infection, monitoring of the disease progression and measuring the function of the various elements of immunity. The 25th WorldLab-EuroMedLab will be the opportunity for us to further emphasize our value and contribution to the society and to the healthcare, discuss latest exciting developments in all areas of laboratory medicine and broaden our knowledge by learning from the best.

The Scientific Committee, which I have the honour to chair, will strive to put together an outstanding, challenging and inspirational programme. We will make sure to address most, if not all, of the topics suggested by the members of the International Scientific Advisory Board and do our best to deliver the content that fully meets your expectations.

None can guarantee that 25th WorldLab-EuroMedLab will be held in personal attendance, but my hopes are that, at the time of this event, the pandemic restrictions will be long gone and that we will have the opportunity to enjoy fully not only the scientific but also the social part of the conference.

What I am absolutely sure is that the organizers will make their best to ensure the safe environment and pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere for you. The beautiful city of Rome will be ready to welcome you warmly in May 2023.

Come to Rome, join us for the 25th WorldLab-EuroMedLab and enjoy the opportunity to get inspired by some extraordinary colleagues, experts and top scientists in our profession.

Help us make the 25th WorldLab-EuroMedLab a truly memorable meeting.

I look forward to meeting you all in Rome!
